It must be baby frenzy season when you have to create more than one baby card. We have several friends and family having babies soon or have already delivered so I had to make a few baby cards and thought it would be fun to make a non-traditional one. So as I researched through the gallery, I found this template. I also took inspiration from other onesie cards I had seen in the SCS gallery. I had to make 3 boy cards and one girl card.

What is Curious George up to??? The first card I had to use my neglected Curious George stamp set that I *stole* (yes, I am a bad mommy) from my 4 yr old who had gotten it as a gift from my sister-in-law when he was only two years old. She gave him a Curious George gift set that contained stationary, a notebook, and the stamp set - he never saw it coming - tee hee! It wouldn't be a boy's card if Curious George wasn't on it.

The second card was made with my other neglected stamp set called "Happy Bug Day" which has been a retired TAC stamp set. I had so many actual onesies stamped with bugs (grasshopper) so I tried to simulate the same on my card. I made two of these cards.

The third card was made with the same TAC "Happy Bug Day" stamp set except with more girly colors. I used the ladybug stamp this time since it was the girliest stamp in the set other than the bumble bee. I also used my favorite cuttlebug embossing folder "Swiss Dots". I now also love to use 3D paint on my cards to make it look like a pearlized embellishment.

I can't figure out which one is my favorite because they all came out so darn cute!!!
